IHG Rewards Club has just made the new Point Breaks hotels for September 1 to October 31, 2013, period available for bookings here. For the first time, IHG made this list available as a preview three days before actual launch.
My tips for booking Point Breaks hotels:
1. Book NOW if you see something that you can use. Hotels often drop off the list soon.
2. Make separate bookings for each night of your stay. If you later need to drop off dates, this will allow you to do that.
Here’s the complete list of Point Breaks hotels that is valid for stays between September 1 to October 31, 2013.
Africa & the Middle East
People’s Republic of China
Central & Souh America
Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites TowerCenter New Brunswick
Holiday Inn Express & Suites Corpus Christi-Portland
This is not a very strong Point Breaks list compared to the previous one. Only two InterContinental Hotels on the list Amman and Kiev. The InterContinental Amman is an older hotel where I have stayed once few years ago.
The InterContinental Kiev is usually quite expensive, so this would be a good way to sample it cheaply.
The Holiday Inn Bangkok that is on the Sukhumvit 22 is an ok’ish property. I stayed there for a night last month to check it out and was not very impressed to say the least.
Let’s hope that then next Point Breaks list that is released in December is a better one.
